In the past, I sold my DS for the sole reason that I wasn't getting much use out of it, only to ever repurchase one - a second hand model saying that - because it seems that I can not resist the lure of Pokemon games and Mario Kart.
So on comes along the Nintendo 3DS and I purchase it thinking that I have myself sorted. The launch line-up was not very good admittedly; however, I was hoping that some more interesting games would soon be released surely and these would be the kind of games that always seem to draw me back for more.
Well that was then and this is now and it's a sad state affairs when I say the only game that has tempted me as of yet is Zelda. It's been said time after time again to the point where it is almost ubiquitous that the Nintendo 3DS just doesn't have any real strong contenders out there just yet.
So now unfortunately I find myself thinking, was I a fool for being one of the initial purchasers of the console? It most definitely seems that I was inane to think that Nintendo would put some strong first party contenders beside the console for launch and I don't think I'm alone in that statement.
I think what rubs salt in the wound is when I take a look at the PS VIta launch line up; it looks so impressive, but I suppose that is a matter of preference.
There is no doubt in my mind that the 3DS will come into its own, but the question is when? I will no doubt hang onto the console until a game worthy of my money appears, but I can't help but feel that it was foolish to rush in so quick. Fool me once, but you won't fool me twice.
So how is everyone finding their 3DS? Is it living up to your expectations or are you also finding yourself waiting for that game which will justify your purchase? I know I am...
